I stayed here on business mid February 15. There was a problem on check-in as I was not on the records. I was given a voucher immediately for a free drink from the bar and asked to check my reservation email confirmation (they explained that there may be a problem with central reservations as there had been earlier that day)....

Used this hotel a few years back but it became very tired looking. Called in today, 20th Feb, and wow what a change. Decor is lively, very modern and very welcoming. Had lunch and served by Kate who mirrored the now very charming hotel, great service with a smile.

Stayed here for one night and that was enough.. Very poorly looked after for a so called valued IHG platinum member. Room was small and bathroom even smaller. There was a constant humming noise which was reported to the hotel reception and we were told would be looked into but never was. The staff were not very helpful in resolving.... More

Lovely hotel by Holiday Inn standards, Much better since the refurbishment. Looked after very well by Nicola and & Kate brilliant service with a nice smile.!!!! although all of the staff I came to contact were friendly and chatty. I will visit again with family so we can visit the lovely nearby town of Richmond.

We were not impressed with the Italian restaurant menu and the food was basic and overpriced.

Although this hotel is situated on a very busy junction the rooms are really quiet and the traffic noise is not a problem. The reception staff were cheerful, friendly and very helpful. They rang after I had reached my room to check if everything was ok which I thought was a lovely touch. The room had complimentary water, juice and... More

What a transformation. Totally rubbish a few years ago but holiday inns has taken over and transformed it into a hotel you would want to stay at. Food excellent and good bar service. Wrinklies party on at night so we were given a superbly quiet room. A great stay. Super well trained and motivated staff.

Rooms were lovely very well looked after with very comfortable bed and all mod cons. Breakfast was all you can eat with bacon and eggs etc but also continental mixed in.
